The opportunities with the highest risks often come with the most significant rewards. As a minority in the tech industry, be fearless, accept feedback, and immerse yourself in new knowledge whenever possible.
Find someone to look up to!
Working in a tech company that’s not diverse can sometimes feel lonely. But you’re not. Find someone who can guide you and with whom you can bounce your ideas, whether in your team, on social media, or tech-specific forums.
Be someone that others look up to!
Being a prominent figure in your team or the industry means you’ll inspire others. Take the chance to lead, be vocal, and others will follow in your footsteps.
Don’t give up!
If it takes time to reach your goals, it takes even more to change company cultures and businesses. Slowly but steady, the industry is becoming equal, and you’re a vital part of getting us there.
At HiQ, we’re proud to be a co-creating partner of the Swedish Women in Tech initiative. Its network and conference aim to inspire women and non-binary people to consider and stay within the tech field. Together with WIT, we’ve organised several events to attract and encourage more women and non-binary people to become a part of the tech industry.
